    Default Battery Power Blower

    Does anyone have any Stihl battery powered tools? Iíve got a garage full of their gas powered stuff thatís great but Stihl doesnít show up in any of the ďtopĒ battery powered tools reports you can find online. Ego seems to take the top award on most review sites for battery powered equipment.

    Iím looking for a battery powered blower. Something I can grab quick to blow out the garage or porches and something my wife can use. I have a nice Stihl backpack blower but itís not really convenient for a quick job and actually hard to maneuver in the garage since youíre stuck with the blower being on the right hand side.

    Father in law has one. Seems to work pretty well. If it didn't he wouldn't own it.

    There all about the same. Get one that your already on a platform. Like if you have dewalt tools get a dewalt blower. The batteries are what’s expensive.

    I have the Milwaukee blower. Works great but no comparison to gas powered unit.

    In laws have the Stihl battery chainsaw, does a decent job.

    I have the big Dewalt one and also the little dewalt one. The little one stays in my toolbox and gets used very regularly cleaning up at work/blowing out the bed. The big one is great for just blowing off porches but also has a lot of power enough to do my driveway too. The wife likes it a ton so she doesn’t have to hassle with the big gas one. I’d highly recommend. I use both all the time.

    And while you’re at it go ahead and buy Dewalts 2.5 gallon battery shop vac. That little thing comes is very handy.

    I looked at the stihl battery operated tools but decided against it because they use several different size batteries across the line. Other companies allow you to use the same size battery in the blower, weedeater, and mower.

    What the difference or would you recommend the LBX6000 over the LB6500. The LBX is listed as a commercial unit but doesn't seem to.have the power of the 6500. Also it looks like the LBX takes a different battery?

    I think I've answered my own question... If the LBX takes the backpack battery I wouldn't want that.

    Go to harbor freight and get the Atlas with the 80 volt battery and thank my later. You can also use their other tools with the same battery. I have the chainsaw and pole saw and use them all of the time.

    I have an EGO chainsaw that will cut rings around the battery Stihl. My FIL has the EGO blower and loves it.
